n 1998, the National Writing Commission on Writing in America’s Schools issued a call to launch a writing revolution in our country’s schools; a call that was answered with the foundation of the Young Writers’ Conference (YWC) in the Los Angeles area, by Julie Moore and Rena Svetic.
 
The combination of their business experience and professional contacts in the creative arts community of Southern California, with educational institutions committed to developing the writing abilities of their students, has created a robust program that has rapidly expanded since its inception.
 
Now celebrating its 10th year, YWC continues to bring the program, which is organized like a university conference, to elementary and middle school students throughout the Los Angeles region.  Pairing students with professional writers from a wide variety of disciplines, the students participate in a series of workshops designed to fulfill the mission of improving their writing skills by first instilling a passion for writing.
